DOJ Must Turn Over Secret Trump-Era Memo That Judge Finds ‘Calls Into Question’ Bill Barr’s Statement to Congress About Obstruction, Mueller Report : politics

“[Barr’s] characterization of what he’d hardly had time to skim, much less, study closely, prompted an immediate reaction, as politicians and pundits took to their microphones and Twitter feeds to decry what they feared was an attempt to hide the ball,” U.S. District Judge Amy Berman Jackson wrote in a scathing 41-page order. […]

“Moreover, the redacted portions of Section I reveal that both the authors and the recipient of the memorandum had a shared understanding concerning whether prosecuting [Trump] was a matter to be considered at all,” Jackson continues. “In other words, the review of the document reveals that the Attorney General was not then engaged in making a decision about whether the President should be charged with obstruction of justice; the fact that he would not be prosecuted was a given.”

The upshot of the memo, the court determined, “calls into question the accuracy of Attorney General Barr’s March 24 representation to Congress.” The judge also noted that the Justice Department’s prior description of the memo “served to obscure the true purpose of the memorandum.”

Jackson determined that her secret “in camera review of the document, which DOJ strongly resisted, raises serious questions about how the Department of Justice could make this series of representations to a court.”

We always knew that Barr covered-up for Trump, and time for the rest of the world to know definitively. He may be gone, but we don’t forget! 🤨😤
